Wisconsin 5 Cent Token

This token belonged to veterans CCC company 1680 of Wisconsin. The Manderscheid reference for CCC tokens says this piece was likely used by the camp near the town of Phelps.

One side of the token reads, “V-1680TH CO. / C.C.C.” with four stars.

The other side of the token reads, “GOOD FOR 5¢ IN TRADE.” There are 5 cent and 10 cent tokens from this camp.

The token reference and the CCC Legacy website indicate this company was located at four places in Wisconsin: Bloomington, Phelps, Blackwell, and Evansville. Archives of the company’s “Warvet” newspaper indicate it was a veteran’s company with work projects across the region.
